Murray’s Hall opened in December 1907 and was used as a theater and community center. It soon became known as the Woodland Opera House. Commercial movie shows began in 1921. The theater closed in June 1952, but a store in the bulding remained open into the late-1950’s when the structure was demolished.

The Theatre Historical Society archive has the MGM Theatre Report for the Woodland O.H.; it’s Card # 467. Address is “Main St.” There is an exterior photo dated Feb. 6, 1941. Condition is Fair. The report says it opened in 1936 (perhaps for the then-current movie operator, but the theater dated from 1907), that it was not showing MGM films, and had 360 seats. The 1940 population was 2,000. This theater is, of course, not to be confused with the well-known Woodland Opera House in Woodland, Calif., which is still open.
